Alabama Courses of Study
AL.1.PS. PHYSICAL SCIENCE
Waves and Their Applications in Technologies for Information Transfer
1.PS.1. Conduct experiments to provide evidence that vibrations of matter can create sound (e.g., striking a tuning fork, plucking a guitar string) and sound can make matter vibrate (e.g., holding a piece of paper near a sound system speaker, touching your throat while speaking).
AL.1.ESS. EARTH AND SPACE SCIENCE
Earth’s Place in the Universe
1.ESS.8. Observe, describe, and predict patterns of the sun, moon, and stars as they appear in the sky (e.g., sun and moon appearing to rise in one part of the sky, move across the sky, and set; stars other than our sun being visible at night, but not during the day).
1.ESS.9. Observe seasonal patterns of sunrise and sunset to describe the relationship between the number of hours of daylight and the time of year (e.g., more hours of daylight during summer as compared to winter).
